Last year brought endless amounts of celebration revolving around Back to the Future. Not only did it mark the 30th anniversary of the original time travel film from director Robert Zemeckis, but it also marked the year in which Doc Brown and Marty McFly traveled into the future in Back to the Future Part II. There were endless screenings, fan gatherings, and tons of new memorabilia released. But just because those milestones are passed us doesn’t mean fans are done celebrating.
The first annual Back to the Future Fan Celebration is coming next month, and the festivities will be happening at a location that will be very familiar to fans of the time travel franchise: Twin Pines Mall. Get the details on the 2016 Back to the Future Fan Celebration after the jump. Read More »

You might recall that late last year on Back to the Future Day (October 22nd 2015) it was revealed that Nike’s Tinker Hatfield was hard at work making sure at least one of Back to the Future Part II‘s predictions came true. The shoe designer hand-delivered a prototype of self-tying Nike Mags to Back to the Future star Michael J. Fox , with the promise that the real sneakers would be released in spring 2016. Now we finally get a look at the finished product.

Longtime fans of the Back to the Future trilogy know that there are many parallels that run between all three of the films. For example, one of the biggest parallels between all three films is a big chase that happens in the middle of Hill Valley’s town square. There’s also Marty McFly waking up from what he thinks is a dream in every single movie, only to realize that he’s not dreaming when some form of Lea Thompson is in front of him. But it turns out there might be more than just shared sequences, plot points, etc.
A couple years ago, Back to the Future fan Robert Lockard proposed the theory that the entire sci-fi trilogy from director Robert Zemeckis is actually one big chiasmus. What’s a chiasmus? A video explains the Back to the Future chiasmus theory after the jump so you can better understand. Read More »
In the world of pop culture, there are some actors who are only ever best known for a single role they played in a movie or TV show. No matter how much other work they do, they’ll always be that character in the eyes of the audience. Ralph Macchio is The Karate Kid, Macaulay Culkin is Kevin McCallister, Jason Biggs is the guy who fucked a pie, Henry Winkler is The Fonz and Mark Hamill is Luke Skywalker (though he has become well known for voicing The Joker in animated form too).
The same can also be said of Tom Wilson, the man who is known for playing the bully Biff Tannen (and all of his ancestors and descendants) in the Back to the Future trilogy. Now the actor tries to confront the daunting prospect of having become pop art by creating some therapeutic art of his own. Not only is the art pretty cool, but it’s fascinating to see the actor deal with his kind of fame so bluntly and publicly. Check out the Tom Wilson I Am Pop Art video below. Read More »

The folks over at Super-Fan Builds have created some truly remarkable things for the most hardcore of fans. Some of their creations include a real-life version of the double decker couch from The LEGO Movie and an Iron Man Hulkbuster armor high chair. Now they’ve combined two different time machines into one for the ultimate 80s movie mash-up.

The British alternative rock group Coldplay is one of those bands that people either love or hate. However, even if you’re one of the people who just can’t stand the vocal stylings of frontman Chris Martin and the sounds the rest of the band plays, I think you’re going to love them for a little bit after to see a video recorded at a recent concert.
Chris Martin has a son named Moses who is 10 years old. And while the lead singer is out on tour, his son had just one request, and that was for him to play a song from their favorite movie, Back to the Future. Not only did Chris Martin make his son’s dreams come true, but he came through in a way that makes all other fathers look bad by having Michael J. Fox come out and play “Johnny B. Goode,” just like he did in the movie.

There’s a lot to love about George Miller’s Best Picture nominated action adventure Mad Max: Fury Road. Every facet of the film is impressive, but undoubtedly one of the coolest elements of the film are the post-apocalyptic vehicles that all the characters right around in. There are classic hot rods turned into fast-moving tanks, semi-trucks turned into death machines in eighteen wheels, and that vehicle with the Doof Warrior that is essentially a mobile metal concert from a Dr. Seuss nightmare.
But what if a bunch of other famous vehicles from film and television got a Mad Max makeover? What would cars like the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future, the Mystery Machine from Scooby-Doo or even the staircase truck from Arrested Development look like if they were modified to look like vehicles from the Wasteland? Illustrator Scott Park has answers to all those questions and plenty more with a cool new set of drawings that you can check out after the jump. Read More »
